Condo Alternative / Great Flip / Fixer

 Welcome to this cozy cottage condo alternative! Located in a tucked-in-between-it-all neighborhood, with inviting sidewalks and even asweet “Little Library” on the property, the sense of community andidentity is easy to sense.

Park on the roomy covered pad (deep enough for multiple cars, or anRV or boat – with locking gate) and step up to the deck right-sizedfor a pair of chairs and bistro table to enjoy coffee and chats with the neighbors or friends.

Step on into the living area. A nook behind the door can be enclosedas a closet; add hooks for coats and a bench or shelves for shoes and grab-and-go items. Basic furnishings for seating and a bar-height table with chairs could function for dining and workspace. Hardwoods are hiding under the carpets!

To the right is the compact kitchen with updated cabinets, solidsurface countertops, and the free-standing range and refrigerator that stay with the house. Keep the laundry zone here or relocate thewasher and dryer to the roomy bonus area attached to the workshopto set a small table here instead.

Continuing through the house, be sure to notice the period glassdoorknobs. Two closets in the hallway provide storage for all thebasics. The roomy closet with attic access to the left works for bulkyor seasonal items, while the traditional linen closet on the right hasshelves for towels, sheets, and toiletries.

The full bathroom has an updated vanity, and the walls have been freshly painted. The shower surround has been caulked and is ready for its new season of life.

Just up the hall from the bathroom is the second bedroom that has aroomy closet that could easily be maximized with shelving. Windowson two sides of the walls provide good natural lighting in the compact space.

The primary bedroom is adjacent and fits a queen bed. A simple closetholds the basics, and the windows on two sides of the wall enlargethe space with outdoors-in light. Hardwoods under the carpet hereas well!

The better-than-renting highlight is the outdoor space. Enlarge thepatio or add a deck out back for relaxation; add a firepit to the cementpatio for dry Fall evenings. There is plenty of room in the yard for playand a pup, and the planting beds are ready for winter vegetables.Grass extends behind the Shop for even more options.

The fantastic garage/workshop has cedar siding and features two separate spaces that include a fished bonus space that would beperfect for a studio, private office (just add a minifridge and coffeepot!), or dry storage area; as well as a traditional garage/workshopwith overhead lighting and shelving galore for tools and supplies.Good luck finding *that* in a condo!!

The house has easy-care exterior vinyl siding, double pane vinyl windows keep weather out and the warmth in, and the roof is approximately ten years old. So much potential and in a near-it-all NE Portland location!
